LIK USA Employee Spotlight: Sharon “Shea”


Meet the Trusted Staffer Who Cuts Peter’s Prints with Expert Precision

Sharon – who is affectionately known around LIK USA as “Shea” – has for years been responsible for making sure every image that leaves Las Vegas is trimmed to Peter’s exact specifications. Not only has she shined as supervisor and lead operator of the in-house Zund (a state-of-the-art, Swiss-made digital cutter), she has become a highly trusted team member that always seems to have a smile on her face – even during the company’s intensely challenging releases.

Shea, who was recently voted to receive a LIK USA Achievement Award, could not be more proud of her time at the Artist’s Vegas facilities: “I get to come to work every day and do what I love, while working with beautiful art,” she remarks, “and the continual challenge of getting new releases out pushes me to always give 100%.” It is a sentiment that could not be more meaningful to the Artist himself: “Everyone on the staff, myself included, has developed a strong respect for Shea,” says Peter. “I couldn’t imagine running this ship without her.”
